verse 2: same as the first but the D5 rings out more and has small slide before it

B                            D\A                             B
 I see the sunset sea on fire  ships burn off the coast of orion
G                             B A
 dreams of peace wait on the horizon for yee
B                           D\A
 clouds filled with blood rain on the water
  B G                                       B A
 ????? night time fingers clench the last ????

D\B                D\A                 B G                 B A

during this last phrase
play the same thing but strike the chords between the root notes (heavy metal style)
